MORE INFO FOR 2021-2022

Region XI and its five charters offer scholarships to graduating seniors who are the children of ACSA members. This year, as part of ACSA’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, the region has decided to increase the value of the scholarships to $1,000 each and to grant additional money to each charter, so they may do the same.

Applications are submitted to your charter, who will award scholarships, then forward their top applicants’ names to the region for additional scholarship opportunities. Region XI will be giving out 15 $1,000 scholarships.
